Vets Told They Can 'Buy Back' 2nd Amendment Rights

Vets told they can 'buy back' 2nd Amendment rights

'This is illegal and is called extortion'


A legal team investigating the Obama administration’s order that certain American military veterans deemed “incompetent” give up their weapons says the problem is worse than expected.

People who live with veterans now are being ordered not to possess a gun, and some veterans are told they can “buy back” their Second Amendment rights by giving up their veterans’ benefits.

“This is simply unbelievable, On the one hand the [Veterans Administration] and the FBI have found veterans to be mentally ill and too dangerous to be allowed to own firearms, while on the other hand allowing these allegedly dangerous people to buy their firearms rights back,” wrote Michael Connelly, executive director of the United States Justice Foundation in a report.

“This is illegal and is called extortion.”

The organization has been looking into claims by a number of veterans and their family members.

The veterans were sent a letter telling them they were being classified as incompetent and the government was assigning someone to help them handle their benefits and payments.

It seems that whenever I think our government has reached a new low, they manage to find ways to sink even lower. I do not believe they are even close to being finished with the damage they are doing to us - not by a long shot. Pray and keep on preparing.

My sentiments exactly, Vicki - thanks. And good advice!

read a quote from lily tomlin- 'no matter how cynical you become, you just can't keep up.'

now that i'm old i see why 'the jaws of hell widen'.

Well done, and is anyone really surprised by this??? They ARE after us, we cost too much and we're obviously dangerous!

Rev. Paul said...

Deborah - Lily Tomlin is right. And the Bible says that in the last days, the devil will be working furiously, as he knows his time is short.

But then, that's good news!

NFO - correct. But once again, I must repeat that I'm not dangerous to any human, unless he/she tries to hurt me or my family. Then all bets are off.

There is going to come a time when this government tries to take that last push that will finally unite us. I hope I'm around to see it.

Rev. Paul,

My blood pressure is boiling after reading this article. If I leave a post regarding this article, and our government actions..... I may just blow a gasket.....

Based on previous comments.....y'all know where I stand.

Rev. Paul said...

Chickenmom, I'm not in any hurry at all. Like most folks, we just want to be left alone, and still don't truly understand why some think they must control everyone else. It's ... insane.

Sandy, take a deep breath. If you're upset, it interferes with your aim. Heh. :)
